Sarah Palin told the CPAC 2015 audience that “honorable” presidential candidates should spend some time serving in our military. I guess that leaves her and the rest of the GOP field out of the running. Sarah Palin: No current Republican candidates are qualified to be president – and neither am I: Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin…

    So Sarah said something stupid?
    Well color me surprised.

  2. Larry Schmitt February 27th, 2015 at 12:24 pm

    More proof that she neither reads what she says before she says it, nor does she listen to herself.

    So she is talking about the chickenhawks now?

    George W. Bush – used his family connections (what else is new?!?) to get into the Air National Guard and then “deserted” his post for two years. but still got an “Honorable Discharge”

    Dick Cheney – sought graduate school deferment, (too smart to die).

    Donald Trump should have been drafted during the Vietnam War, but thanks to FIVE deferments from 1964 through 1969, he avoided service

    G.O.P. presidential candidate Giuliani had the gall to question the courage of Democratic war hero John Kerry. Yet,
    “Giuliani did not serve in the military during the Vietnam War. He received a student deferment while at Manhattan College and another while at NYU


    Romney supports enthusiastically, his response was “My sons are adults. They’ve chosen not to serve in the military in active duty and I respect their
    decision in that regard.

    She thinks this idea is new? Or is she forever “going rogue”?

      Don’t confuse, “going rogue” with being dumber than dog sh!t.

    I wonder if Orange boy was squirming in his seat.

    “How many Americans are harmed today because politically correct rules of engagement are imposed by those who are just too uncomfortable to give troops the trust and the tools that they need to win,” she said.
    Like when bush wouldn’t let our troops go into Pakistan and get Osama?

  7. Ronald L February 27th, 2015 at 10:41 pm

    There is not way that saying dumb, self-defeating stuff will keep Palin out of politics.

  8. Ronald L February 27th, 2015 at 10:44 pm

    She says, “We demand that the vets are first in line for benefits.”

    We Democrats support the troops — even after they come home.

    You can’t say that about Sarah Palin’s party.

  9. Ronald L February 27th, 2015 at 10:45 pm

    Is it terrible that I find her attractive?

    (As long at it is LowDef with the sound muted, anyway.)

    • jasperjava February 27th, 2015 at 11:30 pm

      I found her attractive for about ten minutes in 2008.

      Then I heard her speak and her ignorance and stupidity killed that buzz for good.

  10. liberalMD February 28th, 2015 at 12:27 am

    I think Sarah Palin eliminated herself as being a serious candidate for President back in

    August 2008, but not because she hadn’t served in the military.

  11. fancypants February 28th, 2015 at 5:42 am

    Also good news; I didn’t see huckleberry or ted nugent or chris Christie in the cpac highlites Today and that’s a very good thing !

    “Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) suggested – perhaps unwittingly…”
    Should it be “dim-wittingly”?
    GOP is overpopulated with dimwits.
